Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are rare cancers and include diseases of the blood and bone marrow. MPNs involve dysregulation at the multipotent hematopoietic stem cell (CD34). MPNs occur when the bone marrow produces too many red blood cells, platelets, or certain white blood cells. The primary subtypes include myelofibrosis, polycythemia vera, and essential thrombocythemia.
